Measures are in accordance with the provisions of the Council Presidency on the coronavirus infection.

 

According to the new measures for containing COVID-19 infections provided for by Prime Ministerial Decree dated 26 April 2020, it is mandatory, throughout Italy, to use respiratory protection in enclosed places that are accessed by the public and at all times when it is not possible to continuously guarantee the maintenance of the safety distance. Even at the airport, the use of masks is therefore compulsory; passengers who do not have them can  ask at the security checks.

N.B. Children under the age of six are not under this obligation, nor are those with disabilities that do not require the continuous use of masks or individuals who interact with the aforementioned people.

In line with the legislation implemented by the Ministry of Health (protocol no. 21870 of June 23, 2020) and ENAC (the Italian Civil Aviation Authority), all airlines, from the 26th of June onwards, will require passengers to complete a self-declaration Covid-19 form before departure, including: 

  1. self-certification by the passenger that they have not had any close contact with anyone known to have the COVID 19 disease in the two days before the onset of symptoms, and in the 14 days after the onset of symptoms
  2. for the purposes of tracing possible contacts, the passenger must notify the airline and local health authority if they become aware of any COVID 19 symptoms within 8 days of landing.  The attached form has been provided by the Ministry of Health and must be completed by the passenger - preferably electronically - and delivered to the airline before departure.

Regulatory measures 

 

  • In order to comply with the decree signed by Minister Speranza, we would like to remind any citizens who have been to Romania and Bulgaria in the last 14 days that they must self-isolate. This decree is effective from now until the 31st of July 2020.

 

  • Prime Ministerial Decree dated 14 July 2020 extends the measures of the previous Prime Ministerial Decree until 31 July 2020 and confirms the provisions contained in the orders of the Ministry of Health dated 30 June 2020 and 9 July 2020 - which remain in force until 31 July. Two points have been included in the document “Guidelines for user information and the organisational methods for containing the spread of COVID-19 in the public transport sector", as regards the air transport industry:
  1. repositioning and movements within the same aircraft are minimised; carriers can define, with airport managers, specific procedures that enable the loading of hand luggage of the permitted size to be placed in overhead compartments, implementing appropriate selective boarding and disembarking measures, in relation to the allocated seats on board the aircraft, guaranteeing the due technical operation times in order to avoid crowds during boarding and disembarkation and minimising the handling stages;
  2. personal clothing to be placed in the overhead compartments must be kept in a special disposable container, handed out by the carrier at the time of boarding, in order to avoid contact between travellers’ personal clothing placed in the same overhead compartments.
  • As established by the Decree of the Minister of Health issued on 9 July 2020, we hereby inform you that entry to, and transit through Italy, is forbidden for anyone who has stayed in or passed through the following countries in the last fourteen days: Armenia, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Brazil, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Chile, Kuwait, Northern Macedonia, Moldova, Oman, Panama, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Serbia, Montenegro and Kosovo.

  • Until 30 June 2020, travel to and from countries and territories other than those indicated remains prohibited, except for proven work needs, absolute emergencies or for health reasons. Returning to your home, domicile or residence remains permitted in any case.

In any case, in addition to crews, travel staff and medical staff – the following are also excluded: 1. citizens and residents of the EU, the Schengen States, Andorra, the Principality of Monaco, the Republic of San Marino, the Vatican City State and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, who are coming to Italy for proven reasons of work; 2. cross-border workers entering and leaving Italy for proven reasons of work and are subsequently returning to their place of residence, dwelling or stay; 3.

  • As stated in the Guidelines for User Information and Organisational Arrangements to Contain the Spread of Covid-19 in Public Transport - Technical Annex on Aviation (Annex 15 to the Prime Ministerial Decree of 11 June 2020), the one-meter inter-personal spacing on board aircraft can be waived, provided that the air on board is renewed every three minutes, that the flows are vertical and that HEPA filters are adopted, as these precautions mean that there is sufficiently high air purification on-board the aircraft. The use of masks for no longer than 4 hours will be guaranteed by providing replacements for longer periods; further to this, large cabin baggage will not be allowed on-board in order to minimise movement within the aircraft.
